Smells like posthumous profit...

An album of home recordings from the late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain is to be released in the summer…

Cobain is the enduring enigma of late twentieth-century rock ‘n’ roll, and remains a hero for many over 20 years after his death.

The director of Montage of Heck, a new documentary about the singer’s life, has announced plans of releasing a record of solo recordings.

“[The album] will feel like you’re kind of hanging out with Kurt Cobain on a hot summer day in Olympia, Washington as he fiddles about,” said director Brett Morgen.

“Just to be clear, it’s not a Nirvana album, it’s just Kurt and you’re going to hear him do things you never expected to come out of him,” continued Morgen.

Montage of Heck will be screened in the US on May 4.
